|Description ||Summer Solstice at Exernsteine, Germany.|
|Incredible rock formations! Is that a bridge going from one stack to another?|
|Yes, thats a bridge to the "upper chappel". Theres a hole in the rock thru which the sun shines on daybreak at summer solstices.
Officials says, that about 3,000 people normally here at summer solstice. But I think, that are more if weather is good. Last year, in 2003, when there where the solstice on a weekend, it was absolutely traffic chaos! Hundreds of people are drumming or blowing their didgeridoos. You can meet strange people or only snoopy people. It is a very peacefully celebration and the people have a lot of fun. There is a lot of police, red cross and civil defense/protection (Technisches Hilswerk). But it is an unorganized event. you can learn more on the site (but all in german) www.externstein.de or see some more pictures on my site www.stonepages.de
